doparse: Parsing a String with 'DO' Statements

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/doparse.R

Description

This function parses a string and expands this string in case of DO statements which are shortcuts for writing loops. The statement DO(n,m,k) increments an index from n to m in steps of k. The index in the string model must be defined as %. For a nested loop within a loop, the DO2 statement can be used using %1 and %2 as indices. See Examples for hints on the specification. The loop in DO2 must not be explicitly crossed, e.g. in applications for specifying covariances or correlations. The formal syntax for
for (ii in 1:(K-1)){ for (jj in (ii+1):K) { ... } }
can be written as DO2(1,K-1,1,%1,K,1 ). See Example 2.

Usage

Arguments

A string with DO or DO2 statements.
